Star Wars fans looking to invest in some new real estate might want to check out a property that just went onto the market in suburban Houston, Texas.

Colloquially known as the “Darth Vader House,” the property, located in West University Place in southwest Houston, pays homage to the famous screen villain. Per the official listing on Sotheby’s International Realty, the house was built in 1992 and comes in at just over 7,000 square feet. Containing four bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and an attached four-car garage, the home is perfect for any small to medium-sized family.

The entire exterior of the house bears a strong resemblance to Darth Vader’s iconic helmet, and orange-tinted windows and outdoor lighting help to complete the fearsome look. The Star Wars fun doesn’t stop outside, though. Whether on purpose or by coincidence, the interior of the home looks like it could easily be straight out of a galaxy far, far away. The plush living room has deep blue mood lighting and a modern aesthetic that definitely wouldn’t be out of place on Coruscant. The rest of the house matches the eclectic style, with modern art and black marbled floors that bring to mind a spaceship or star cruiser.

Even some big-name Star Wars celebrities got into the action. Mark Hamill, who played the iconic Luke Skywalker, appears to be a big fan of the home. Hamill, who is known for his witty tweets, shared the listing on Twitter, posting a link to the house with the hashtag #ContactSithRealty:

The home is currently on the market for a cool $4.3 million, which is a price tag that definitely stands alone in the neighborhood. Per CNN, the average property value in West University Place ranges from $805,000 to $2.7 million. So while Star Wars fans will have to pay a bit more to get this Darth Vader house in their name, they’ll be able to say that they are the true owners of the Dark Side.

Various listing information, as well as a full photo gallery of the interior, can be seen on the house’s Zillow page.
